Update - Face-2-Face Volunteer Services Plan

The Texas Department of Criminal Justice is continuing to make changes to the resumption of face-to-face volunteer services. Currently all units (excluding those in lockdown) will be allowing volunteers at full capacity, as well as the continuation of in-person volunteer training sessions.

Please coordinate with the unit chaplain or facility volunteer coordinator.

What to expect:

  • Effective Friday, April 1, 2022, the use of face masks will be optional at all units, including private facilities.
  • Based on consultation with the Health Services Division and our medical partners, mask requirements may be reimplemented should the need arise.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all volunteers for your continued dedication to the inmate population and the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. Your continued willingness and efforts of support are appreciated immensely.
